The August red drum bite is on. These fish are taking cut bait fished on sinker slides in the lower Chesapeake’s 20-30 foot channel edges. There have been cobia and tons of small sharks to keep you from the throes of boredom. The best action has been at or just after sunset. Flounder continue to give us some seaside thrills during the last of the flood near inlets of the ESVA. The Chesapeake is still producing Spanish on the troll with Clarkespoons, as well as what appears to be to start of a great spec year!
Looks like another nice weekend coming our way. The Chesapeake has been producing Specs, Spanish and Perch. Also there are still cobia around and the August red bite should start anytime. There are flood tide flounder still available in the seaside inlets. Offshore has been mainly mahi and marlin action. The railcars reefs have been a bit hit and miss. Get out and enjoy this great weekend!
